Imagined slights, grudges, comparisons to others, regrets, self-pity, occasional delusions of grandeur.
The demons don’t like fresh air. What they like best is if you stay in bed with cold feet
It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling.
if you can figure out how to be alone, really, that’s it man.
To live outside the law you must be honest
The children pass through Autumn’s gold
Like rippling water
Just a whisper across the mirror.
